      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good for solid, basic understanding of UKCAT questions. Try to improve your thinking speed.

      Just finished my summer exams at college. Then decided to practise for UKCAT. People advised me to buy this book from my college and on forums such as StudentRoom.co.uk. Good for basic understanding. Abstract reasoning was my weakest area. Helped me improve my timing. Also gives tips per each sub-section. Recommend to buy the latest book as this year (2013) UKCAT is changing. Furthermore ratings for how helpful each section was towards my UKCAT. Quantitative reasoning: 6/10. Qualitative reasoning: just basic maths skills and applied with speed: 7/10. Abstract reasoning: 10/10 (other books increase difficulty compared to actual test therefore in some ways may be seen as a waste of time attempting abstract reasoning in other books.) Decision analysis: 8/10.

      The book includes a full mock test which helped me a little bit but i preffered using online methods to test myself as in the end the test will be computerised. However the length and type of questions seems to be quite accurate. I overall received an above average score of 670 on my UKCAT. I revised form this book for 2 weeks beforehand, no other books therefore it helps with basic understanding of text and structure of what you will be asked.
